ThinkOptimal Launches MyOptimalCareer A total solution to help individual job seekers advance their careers
DURHAM, N.C., Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ThinkOptimal announced today the launch of MyOptimalCareer, the industry's most comprehensive suite of tools to help individual job seekers market themselves and manage all phases of the modern job search. MyOptimalCareer delivers everything job seekers need in one package. It includes an InterviewCoach™ with webcam-based interview practice for more than 1,000 interview questions, advanced tools for building online portfolios, video resumes, and professional websites, an award-winning Resume Builder with industry-specific resume samples, and a Cover Letter Builder with sample letters for the most challenging job search situations.
"In today's job market, candidates need more than great resumes and cover letters. All too often, they fail to realize that a resume is meant to get you an interview, not the job. Interviewing is where you make or break the deal, and the interview process has evolved into a multi-hurdle obstacle course with phone screenings, online interviews, and live, face-to-face meetings," noted Mark McNasby, ThinkOptimal's CEO. "This is where MyOptimalCareer gives the job candidate an edge. While our product creates quality resumes and cover letters quickly and easily, we go further. We prepare you for the crucial, all-decisive interview phase of the job search process. Our InterviewCoach™ is a powerful tool that allows job seekers to practice, record, review, and refine their interview skills. Our goal is not just to help you get your foot in the door. We want to help you land the job."
MyOptimalCareer's InterviewCoach™ comes with four interviewer personas, flexible controls to adjust the length and format of each interview, and the ability to select from a broad range of customizable interview scenarios. It provides four different recording formats including voice and video recording. You can self-critique or share the output with a friend or trusted advisor for more objective feedback. "Developed in collaboration with professional career coaches with decades of experience, InterviewCoach™ makes it easy to rehearse for job interviews in the privacy of your own home and interview with confidence when the time comes," explained Dave McNasby, ThinkOptimal's Chief Innovation Officer. "Every question is accompanied by expert coaching to help you formulate an appropriate response that reflects who you are and your unique story."
